An annual entertainer that has got seamless love from audiences over the years, “Bigg Boss” is one of the most anticipated and celebrated shows on the entertainment calendar in India. And this year, it gets bigger with unlimited drama, and by extending its presence on a new destination, Voot, the country’s second largest digital video-on-demand streaming service.
Celebrities who have had memorable and even career-altering stints on the show are also excited about this all-new format. Shweta Tiwari said, “I’m extremely excited to know that my favorite reality show is arriving early this year. For me, ‘Bigg Boss’ was a life-changing experience. Not only did it let the audience know me beyond my persona as an actor, but ended up teaching me to be more patient, tolerant and yet assertive. It also gave me friends like family. I watch ‘Bigg Boss’ every year, but I think that as an audience member, I am going to have more power than ever before to be the real judge of the show. That makes this OTT launch absolutely thrilling.”
Nikki Tamboli stated, “In a show full of drama, I was happy to be the uncrowned drama queen! ‘Bigg Boss’ was quite an interesting experience for me, and my life changed for the better. With so many people with different mindsets, ideologies, opinions and ways locked in a house, there is bound to be some friction. But what’s life without dollops of drama and some unexpected challenges, isn’t it? In its digital first avatar, I am expecting the show to offer its fans some unlimited mazaa, and I am honestly looking forward to knowing really how over-the-top the drama gets!”
Rahul Vaidya added, “I have been a product of reality shows. If a reality show gave me a chance to show the world my talent as a singer, ‘Bigg Boss’ has helped me cement my space in the industry. But like they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder… I can truly say that it is one show that makes you realize the value of your loved ones and brings you closer to them. In a way, I feel “Bigg Boss OTT” will drive the audiences closer to the contestants, and they should get ready for all the drama, twists, turns and suspense! I can’t wait to witness the all-new avatar of the show.”
